The 3 Series possesses five supportive and comfortable seats, and provides plenty of adjustment options for the driver to find his or her ideal position. The vehicle is also very roomy in both compartments, with more than enough space for four full-size adults, or a family of five. The car possesses a minimum-capacity 370-litre boot. If even more luggage capacity is required, it’s worth considering the BMW 3 Series Touring. Aside from providing additional legroom for rear-row travellers, it contains a luggage compartment that expands from 500 litres (all seats up) to a class-competitive 1,500 litres (rear seats dropped).
The 3 Series comes with an array of standard features, including automatic two-zone air conditioning, power-operated front and rear windows and a minimum six-speaker sound system that features DAB radio. Bluetooth connectivity is included too, facilitating audio streaming and hands-free mobile communication.
Also featured as standard is a 6.5-inch satellite navigation system, which delivers 3D mapping and real-time traffic information. Awarded a maximum five-star rating by Euro NCAP, this exceptionally safe vehicle comes with plenty of protective features. Included is BMW Emergency Call, which automatically contacts the emergency services should the car be involved in an accident.
The cultured 3 Series Saloon is a fine-looking vehicle and rides on 17-inch V-spoke design alloy wheels as standard. At the front of the car, the eye-catching twin-kidney grille features black-finished vertical louvers, while the rear boasts a chrome-finished exhaust tailpipe. This practical automobile possesses a wide-opening tailgate too, which allows easy access to shopping and luggage. All models feature LED illumination, such as daytime running lights that emit a distinctive light signature, ensuring that the vehicle is always easy for other road users to see.
A 1.5-litre 136bhp petrol engine is fitted as standard with entry-level SE grades. This 318i unit manages up to 52.3mpg, produces CO2 emissions from 124g/km and delivers 0-60mph in approximately nine seconds. A 2.0-litre 190bhp diesel unit, meanwhile, delivers 400Nm of torque and 0-60mph in a little over seven seconds. This BMW 320d unit also returns as much as 67.3mpg, and produces emissions as low as 111g/km. A good blend of power and efficiency is provided by a BMW 330d engine. This 3.0-litre diesel unit produces a peak torque of 560Nm, 0-60mph in roughly five seconds – and still manages up to 56.5mpg.
